no chance for fog yet but the systems coming in are weak and tend to erode the high very slowly. it will be warm today. 70s and 80s. i don't have any 90s on this panel. sal is here and he's looking at his screen. >> i am using my fire icon. >> we have one? >> we do. westbound 580 at the altamont pass. there was a grass fire. a truck caught fire. one of our guys came through there and said the lanes are open but it was on the shoulder and could cause a traffic jam because of all the activity. we do not have a lot of traffic right now. i don't think it will take long for it to get slow on 580. it was near grant line road on the altamont pass.
traffic is going to be busy and getting busier by the moment giving out to the 86 interchange looks good. let me go back for a second to show you something. this is the median work they are doing in san leandro northbound 880 as you approach marina. they are doing some road work and it looks like there is some slow traffic. once you get past that, up to oracle arena, it is moving along a lot better and it's light on the way to downtown oakland. it's also light at the bay bridge toll plaza. bay area police are searching for two men blamed for a string of violent crimes and they say they are part of a larger crime ring. the suspects are linked to home invasion robberies, sexual assaults and at least one murder.

all locations are believed to be part of a statewide brothel ring. >> a 24 hour period where these crimes occurred. really violent and brazen acts. >> reporter: fremont police say and all they attacked a half dozen young women. >> that's the thing with these brothels. they can pop up anywhere. people who constantly see foot traffic coming and going. call. >> reporter: please identified and arrested three men. an yan, lin tao and panpan haung at their homes in southern california. they are still looking for these men described to be chinese. one in the late 20s and another in his late 30s. they're hoping to get as many eyes on them as possible in hopes to take these criminals off the streets. in san ramon, a police
investigation is focused on an eight-year-old boy in the third grade brought a loaded gun to school. this happened a twin creeks elementary school on tuesday. the loaded gun was in his backpack and he showed the gun to other students who told their parents. the parents notified school officials. the police went to the little boy's home and they found the gun in the backpack. >> a kid does not know how to handle the gun or understand the damage it can do. i would not say it's the kid's fault. a third grader does not have the mental capacity to understand the consequences of handling a gun or taking a gun to school. it's the parents. >> the district sent a letter to parents saying the student will face appropriate disciplinary action. please note the safety of our students, staff and families is our top priority. police have not said how a little boy got the gun or if charges will be filed. the shasta county sheriff's office has released information about the mysterious objection of a woman in redding last
year. >> one is the last time you heard from her? >> she sent me a text asking me if i was coming home from lunch. >> this is the 911 call where sherri papini's husband first reported she was missing. >> they are's hair in the headphones. i'm totally freaking out thinking someone grabbed her. >> three weeks after she vanished she was found bruised and battered along interstate 5 and yolo county. her blonde hair had been cut to shoulder length and she had a brand burned into her right shoulder. investigators say they found dna from two people on papini. that of a man and a woman. the male dna was not that of her husband. she has described her abductors as two latina women who took her at gunpoint in a black suv. yesterday the sheriff's
department released these sketches of the suspects who papini said partially cover their faces when she was with them. one is a woman with long curly hair, pierced ears and thin eyebrows between 20 and 30. the other woman is described as having straight black hair with some gray and thick eyebrows. a bartender from oakland' x uptown neighborhood is accused of beating a man with a baseball bat and is now charged with murder. authorities say juan espino , who works at the restaurant, flora, argued with cooky york on sunday afternoon. video shows espino running with the bat toward york near the fox theater. oakland police say espino ran up to york from behind and hit york in the head with a bat. prosecutors charged espino with murder and an enhancement for using a deadly weapon.
yesterday in his first court appearance, he did not enter a plea. espino worked at the restaurant . a spokesperson released the statement. sunday's events are tragic and heartbreaking and will have a lasting effect on much of our staff and community. we send our deepest condolences to the victim's family and anyone else affected by this horrific tragedy. the world has far too much violence in it. the trail continues of jose ines garcia-zarate , the man charged with the murder of kate steinle. observers say the most riveting moment yesterday occurred when the prosecution played a grainy, digitally enhanced security video of the moment kate steinle was shot. it shows her falling to the ground. prosecutors say the video also shows garcia-zarate walking away after throwing the murder weapon into the water. several officers took the stand including a member of the dive team to recover the gun. another officer testified that garcia-zarate appeared to be a
deer in the headlights when authorities tracked him down along the embarcadero. >> evidence comes in with every witness. and everything is going as expected. these witnesses paint a picture of what the evidence is in this case and why we charge the defendant with murder. >> we think fundamentally that the physical evidence favors our position no matter what any of these witnesses say. at the end of the day, this is a ricochet. that bullet struck a place where it was pointed at. >> that is the defense arguing that the shooting was an accident and that the bullet that killed kate steinle first hit the ground and then ricocheted and hit her in the back. the trump administration said it will not provide money for the delta tunnels. governor brown wants to build these to deliver water to southern california. it's the biggest setback so far
for the plan to reengineer the state's water delivery system. the $17 billion project would send water from northern california to southern california through two tunnels in the delta. the white house says it's committed to helping california with its water delivery problems but the federal government will not pay for the construction costs. a federal judge in san francisco ruled in favor of the trump administration on one part of the affordable care act. california and other states wanted to force the government to pay monthly subsidies that help low income consumers afford health insurance. president trump signed an executive order stopping those payments two weeks ago. the white house argue the money it needs to be approved by congress every year. the final outcome will be decided by the courts. but the states wanted the government to keep making those payments until the case goes to
trial. the judge says most states have found ways to continue the subsidies until a judgment is reached. a study shows the bay area cities where the cost of renting has gone up dramatically. according to an apartment rental website, rents on apartments increased 15.6% over the past year in mountain view where the rent for a one- bedroom apartment is now $3110. in petaluma, the increase was 14.7%. in walnut creek, 12.2%. cities where the cost of rent actually went down in the last year include oakland, berkeley and south san francisco. >> that is a lot of money. still ahead, saving halloween. children whose homes and neighborhoods build -- burned in the wildfires. how santa rosa police are providing popular costumes this year. good morning. traffic is off to a nice start

welcome back. amazon is getting back in from the president when it comes to drones. the president gave the company a gift by allowing the testing of drug delivery for packages. it allows groups to test drums for themes like disaster response, mapping, agriculture and the delivery of goods. until now the federal aviation administration restricted drones from flying over people, operating at night or buzzing beyond the visual line of sight of the ground-based pilot. amazon's newest option for making deliveries to your home has people talking and may also prevent package thefts as well. it's called amazon key. packages can be dropped off
inside your house. you get an app, a smart lock with the key pad an amazon's cloud cam which would be aimed at your door. when it's time for a delivery, you can watch in real time as amazon unlocks your door, the delivery person goes inside and dropped your package inside your house. it sounds pretty good but some people are skeptical including law enforcement officials who say you may be better off leaving your package outside. >> your exposure is the package on your porch. that's your loss. if you open your home up to a delivery person, you have opened up everything. all your valuables that are in view. a theft may come later. >> amazon said there will be a lot of safety measures in place plus no access codes are given to those delivery drivers. the key equipment costs $250.
